Story from a rather odd Sabres blog that's worth a read.
Meanwhile, Ovechkin needs 10 goals and 27 assists to reach 200 for his career in each category. Ovechkin has 363 career points in 283 regular-season games.
Remarkably, despite missing 2 games, it's not out of the question that Ovechkin could reach 500 shots on goal this season. He has 240 through his 38 games played. If he keeps that pace, he'd be at 480 for 76 games, leaving just 20 needed in the last four games.
500 shots is ... ridiculous.
